• BlackBerry 10 Gesture Based Keyboard Coming To iPhone?


    A couple of weeks ago during BlackBerry World 2012 attendees were given a look at some of the new BlackBerry 10 features. Among those new features that wowed the crowd was the new gesture-based, predictive text touchscreen keyboard.

    It is not very often that we reference anything Apple related, but BBOS member DownForce let us know in the forums that, BlackBerry users aren't the only ones excited for this new innovative new feature from RIM. iPhone users could see a clone of RIM's new gesture based predictive type keyboard as early as next week. The jailbreak tweak application Octopus will allow iPhone users to use the keyboard that most Blackberry users are only dreaming about now.

    The Octopus keyboard has features that include, automatically learning new words as you type, custom completion engine, and multi-language support. Sound familiar? If not you will want to take another look at the BlackBerry 10 Sneak Peek Video we posted not too long ago.

    This will be interesting to see how RIM responds to this as it is a jailbreak tweak and not mandated by Apple in any way. So the developer behind Octopus keyboard may find themselves in hot water within the next few weeks.

    What do you think about this? Sound off in the forum.
